Below, we’ve answered all the important questions – so that you know everything you must know before you rent a van.

What Age Do You Need to Be to Hire a Van? 

This is a common question we receive – and the answer is that many different van hire companies have different age restrictions. Overall, the majority of van hire companies require you to be over the age of 25 when you’re hiring a van.

Do You Need a Special Driving Licence?

No, as long as the weight of the van does not exceed 3.5 tonnes, then you can drive a van on a car licence as normal. The overwhelming majority of rental vans are under this weight, so you should have no issues renting a van on your driver’s licence. 

Is a Van More Difficult to Drive?

Today, modern vans are much easier to drive. Vans such as the Ford Transit Connect are smooth to drive, and come with robust engines, first-class functionality and safer driving technology. Therefore, renting a van should in theory be no more difficult – in terms of the driving – than renting a car. 

But, it is vital that you remember the size of your van. A van will always be heavier and bigger compared with a car, so you need to handle it with care. This means taking it slowly on roundabouts and corners, and planning ahead more than usual when you’re driving.

How Long Can You Rent a Van for?

When you come to Mayday Vehicle Rentals, we offer both short and long-term van rentals. So whatever your requirements – whether you need to rent a van in the immediate short-term, or you would like to hire a van for a longer period of time, we can organise a van hire according to your personal needs and timescale. 

What are the Benefits of Van Hire?

Van hire is a great choice as it’s much more affordable; it allows you to access a larger van at a competitive price, allowing you to save money on costs. It’s also incredibly flexible, so you can dictate the period of time you need to hire your van for. What’s more, there are so many ways you can use a van – whether it’s for business, moving your belongings or if you just need a little extra vehicle space.
